A historic first: thanks to a double from Mohamed Bayo, Clermont Foot beat Troyes (2-0) for its first Ligue 1 match at home this Sunday afternoon in a sold-out Gabriel-Montpied stadium. In front of 11,005 spectators, a new attendance record.
Clermont Foot remains co-leader of Ligue 1 with PSG and Angers this Sunday evening at 6 p.m. A hell of a performance for a promoted.
For this first in history in Ligue 1 at the Gabriel-Montpied stadium, the Clermontois thus imposed themselves by scoring two goals, as in Bordeaux, and without taking any, like at Matmut Atlantique.
Present in the stands of the Gabriel-Montpied stadium, defender Jean-Claude Billong « will have a medical examination » on Monday, Pascal Gastien said. The Cameroonian international should then engage with the club.
Clermont Foot will go to the Stade des Lumières next Sunday to face OL curtailed 3-0 in Angers this weekend.
